Fellow Citizens of Coahoma County We have met for tho first time in many years as a Democratic party, with a view to send delegates to Jackson, to meet with others who have been invited by Colonel Htouo to meet tho legislative committee, to take coun sel together as to our future action. It would be useless now to indulge in anv criticisms upou tho wisdom or the folly of our political conduct since tho war, but a b-ief retrospect of the past may furnish a valuable lesson for our course in the luture. Ten years have passed away since the last hostile gun was fired, aud the great armies of the north and the south laid down their arms in expectation of peace. The four years of war through which we had then just prised had brought ruin aud desolation upon the south; but the ten years of peace which have followed have,in some respects, proved more disastrous still. Our houses were burned, our lands laid waste, and our property destroyed by the ravages of war; but the dismal peace which followed has added torture to des olation. It has broken the once proud spirits of our people by coustant threats or military intener;nce in our civil af fairs. It has prostrated our energy by open and unblushing robbery aud em bezzlement of our public funds, which had. been wrung irom a people already threatened with starvation. It has dried up the sources of our prosperity by merciless taxation, as tne sources of life are dried up by the slow poison which the Becret assassin prepares for his vic tim. And it has undermined the foun dations of our institutions until a milita ry despotism bids fair to be established on the mina of republican liberty. And not only has this result been effected in the south, but a change has come over the spirits of the whole people of tho Union. That keen sense of honor which once marked our public men has been blunted, if not destroyed, and that quick resentment i of - the people at the slightest violation of public trust, or the least invasion of political rights lias ceased to exist. Who that remembers the Intense excitement created in the Kublic mind by the charge that Clay ad given his support to Adams in con sideration of a cabinet appointment, can understand the quiet acquiescence of the present day in the purchase of cab inet appointments by gifU of houses and gold? Who that remembers the Co vode investigation could believe that the Credit Mobilier bribery in congress could have been bo easily passed over? Who that remembers the storm of in dignation aroused against Andrew Jackson, when he removed the deposits from the United States banks, could have believed the time would ever come when one hundred guns would be fired iu honor of tho fact that a State legisla ture had been dispersed by Federal bay onets? Who that has read the criti cisms on Washington for the execution of Andre, the British spy, could have dreamed that a day would come when an officer of the United States army would propose to try civilian&Jby a drum head couri-martial in times of profound peace, and that such a proposition could Le approved by the PRESIDENT AND SECRETARY OF WAR. aud be defended on the floor of the Amer ican senate. And who that knew us once could believe that the shoulder strapped assassin who could conceive and publicly proclaim such a diabolical scheme could afterward walk unmolest ed through the streets of the city whoso citizens he had slandered, and whose blood he sought. We are changed in deed. The iron has entered into our souls, and the Israelites in the land of Egypt were not more thoroughly subju gated than we of the south are to-day. We know it, aud we feel, disgraced by it; but yet we rtcognize the fact that oui descent to this lower region has been easy and rapid. Those of us who helped to bring about secession who believed that it was essential to the preservation of our rights, and who went into the war confidently expecting to win were dou bly conquered when we were compelled t surrender. We were conquered by our adversaries in the field, and we were conquered by the fulfilment of the prophecies of our Union friends at home. When the fever and excitement of the struggle were over, and the secessionist beheld the desolation around him, he could not look in the face of his Uuion loving neighbor, who had struggled hard to avert the war.but who had bared his breast to ita fieicest storm when it began, without feeling humbled and subdued iu his presence. He felt as if he owed him a life-long apology for the ruin which his mistaken zeal and Judg ment had brought upon tho country. And not only did the secessionist of Mississippi entertain that sentiment, but he conformed his action to his feel ings. He admitted his failure to tlie fullest extent, and having lost confi dence in hH own Judgment, yielded will ingly anil cheerfully to those who had diflered with him in opinion. The Union man of tho Htate were invited to coiuo forwanl aud as?unie the reins of government which the Democracy hail so long held, and which they then vol untarily surrendered, with a pel f -sacrificing patnoti-m unparalleled in tlie his tory of politic. For then they had an undisputed majority in the State. And what, we would now apk, has been the result of that surrender? We were mis conceived and misconstrued and ma ligned by some from the very beginning. Some of the men who were then hon ored by THE OLD SECESSION DEMOCRACY Willi power and place, turned upon U9 oeiore tiiey were warm in meir seats, aud iu our broken condition poured out their vials of ridicule and abuse upon ua and insulted those who had voluntarily moved irom tne iront oy tauntingly tell ing them Miey must take back seats in the future. Aud men who were put lorwaru to represent us in tho conven tion aud legislature in 1S65, and who were then moat ultra in their views of southern rights, afterward became lead era in the Kadijal camp, aud denounced the Democrats for acts which they Had tnemseivea committed. lint lor the honor of Mississippi, I am glad to know tnat all ner uuiou sons were not parlict panta iu such a course as this. The genial, gifted aud brilliant Yerger, whoso heart bled lor the union when secession was accomplished; the ven erated Chief-Justice Sharkey, whose loyalty was unshaken, when arrested by Confederate troops, and a host of other men, who are now actiug with u?, ac cepted the leadership tendered to them without attempting to perpetuate their power by tramping ou the conquered De mocracy. There were others who gave us no credit for thecoucessions wo made in 1SG5 and since; who lost no opportunity to disparage and bring us into con tempt, and who then sought to rivet upon us the chains of con demnation by holding us up to the puouc as me authors of all their woes, aud by irritating the wounds of the people then bitterly suffering from the fresh panga of defeat. But this miscon ception and denuueiation did not drive the Democracy from the cource of con ciliation they had determined to pur sue. In the presidential canvass of 1S6S we were not recognized as a part of the Union, and iu the canvass of I860 we held back our best men, and ac cepted as our candidate tho brother-in- law to the I'resideut, that we might show our loyalty to theUniou, and we placed a colored man ou our State ticket, tho first ever nominated by any party for any office in the State, that wemignt snow how fully we accepted the reconstruction measures. But for this we were denounced as hyprocritea and wolves in sheep clothing, seeking to beguile the unwary colored man, and to bring ourselves into power. In THE CONTEST OF 18712 we again gave evidence of our anx iety for a thorough reconciliation with the honest men of the north aud for a more healthy uuiou with the colored men of the south, by nominating aud supporting for tlie presidency, Horace ureeley, tne life-Jone friend of tho col ored, man, and the great exponent of northern sentiment, before and during the existence of the war. But again we were denounced asltreacheroua and our motives were impugned. No acceptance of long tried union men aud no indorse ment or union principles, could satisfy the masses of the north or the freedmen of the south of our sincerity and good faith. Wo were required to bow down and worship the nominees of thoKadi cal party and to take back seats in the sanctuary of Iladieal oilice-holders, be fore we could be received into the house hold of the Union. Horace Greeley. one of the fathers of abolitionism, and one oX the founders of the Bepublican . party, received ua witii open arms, as the father received the prodigal son. But it will be remembered that when the prodigal returned lo his father's) house and was received with great rejoicing. there was a jealous brother there who murmured at h'u reception because his envious and avaricious soul was tilled with an unholy longing for the entire inheritance, and he was augry that even a brother should return to share H witn mm. ie would rather have seen that brother continue to "feed upon the husks which tb.3 swine did eat," and perish an outcast upon the dunghills, than see him restored to his father's arma to share in his father's es tate; and, therefore, with the cunning of a politician he sought, by a crafty re hearsal of ins urotner's prodigality and his abandonment of home, to arouse the angry passions of his father agaiust bim, that he might be driven out from the feast mat was prepared lor him. And the same foul spirit of envy and averice fills the souls of the Radical lead ers to-day, and Morton, IiOgan and But ler are the jealous brothers who are ut tering the same murmurs of discontent at our reception and restoration to the place wo once held in tho hearts of the people, aud who are constantly reheara- ng the story or our rebellion that the anger of the nation may be aroused against ua, and that we may be driven from the feast which our Democratic fathers of the north have prepared for ua. They would rather see every State In the south held under military subjec tion, aud THE CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHTS OF EV ERY STATE in the Union trampled in tlie dust than bo themselves turned out of ollice and power ? They pretend to fear that the Union will bo destroyed and the good results of the war lost if the De mocracy are again elevated to power. But the only union whose destruction they fear la the unholy union of the llauical crew the oilice-holders and contractors, the christian statesmen and lobby kings, the military bullies aud camp followers, the harpies and jackals of party who have filled themselves wltn public plunder and HKe me loul birds in Virgil'a feast have polluted ev ery thing they have touched. And the only result of the war they fear to lose is the mournful result which placed a bloody ehirt in every household, by the skillful me of which the Mark Alimo nies of the Kadical party have been able to wipe out all their own sins and to "so ruflle up the spirits" of the north and "put a tongue iu every wound" that the very stones rise up in mutiny against ua. Tiiey us thesa ar guments as a scare-crow to frighten the Jieople of the north from the Democracy ust as they have frightened the free men of the south by tlie ridiculous threat that they will be returned to slavery if the Democracy are returned to power. But to return to the line of my; argument These are not all the sacrifices we have made in Mississippi for the sake of peace and harmony, and for a restoration of our civil liberty. In the last canvas3 of 1S73 the Democratic party disbanded its organization, that its member might support a ticket composed entirely of Republicans and men who were adherents of Grant's ad ministration, and which was led by our distinguished fellow-citizen and townsman, Hon. James L. Alcorn, who was the first man in the government to proclaim himself in favor of a third term. A gentleman whom we all es teem for his high social qualities, and whom all admire for his ability and sound judgment in business transac tions, but whom we of the Democracy regard as unsafe, uusound and unrelia ble in political affairs. He was at that time more obnoxious to THE DEMOCRACY OF MISSISSIPPI than ever Horace Greeley had been, be cause his tinfl were more recent and more difficult of forgiveness. He was one;who, iu IStti, commencad a furious warfare uiou the secession Democracy, just after he was elected, through their influence, to the United Slates senate. He was the originator of the first efforts to organize a party in this State to be composed of northern men, negroes and old whigs, into which the Democrats were not to bo admitted unless they would consent to take back seats. JJo was the author of the appeal which in vited the sons of Democrat to come into bis fold, but which required them to re- i iioiincc and repudiate their secesion ', father" as an atoning sacrifice for their admos'ou into tlie hallowed precuicis or his new organization. And, in 1SHJ( when a portion of the Republicans of the State became appalled at the extreme measures of Ames and his friends aud a split was made iu the Republican ranks, General Alcorn refused to lead the Con servative wing of tlie Republicans and allied himself with Ames and his most Radical followers. And the Democracy believed that he, more than any other one man, had warmed the Radical ser pent into life, and yet when it turned upon him aud would have stran gled him iu its coils, they rallied to his support aud couuomeu nis offences with n forgiveness un precedented in party warfare. But this, like every other effort of the De mocracy to conciliate the colored voter, and to show their thorough submission to the reconstruction measures, proved a miserable and disastrous failure. Many of tlie old-line Democrats, who had fol lowed their hle-leaders, without ques tion, in every other emergency, dropped out of line and refined to follow any longer. I was one among Una numbe;, and for this I was not only severelycen- eured by some of my old friends, out l was read out of the party by some of the newspapers of the State, that were then Democratic, but which have siuce.under the soothing influence of the printing bill, fallen asleep in the arms of Radi calism. But I cau forgive their assaults on me, if they can forgive themselves for the miserable failures they brought upon the party through their instrument ality aud advice. I did not vote in that election; but if I had, with the lights before me,I should have voted for Ames instead of Alcoru.for tlie reason already stated, and further, because I believed that an officer educated at West Point, and trained under the strict discipline of the United States army, would be less apt to do violence to law and order than a mere politician. But I am now convinced that I would have committed a political sin for which I could now scarcely forgive myself, and I thank God that a rain and a slight illness ou the day of election saved me such an iniquity. An honest judiciary is the last STRONG HOLD OF REPUBLICAN LIBERTY, and since I have seen how Ame3 has tampered with the judiciary of Missis sippi, this alone would reuder me thank ful that I had not voted lor him. In vi olation of the constitution, ho would not nominate the chancellors and send iu his nominations to the senate for approv al while it was iu session, and thereby gratified his vanity and love of tyranny by dancing on the tenter hooka of ex pectation a lot of political mendicants, whom he hoped to bind to his triumph al car. And again, in violation of the constitution, be filled and removed theae officers at pleasure in vacation, and kept his unfortunate appointees in constant dread of losing their judicial lives, by holding in terror over their heads the threat that he would not send in their names to the senate at its next session. But this, though a violation of hia oath of ollice, was but a small mat ter when compared with his removal of one chancellor because he had refused bail to a Radical murderer, and another because he failed to decide a railroad case according to his dicta tion; and these acts again sink into insignificanco when compared with Ins subsenuent eondiict. wbnn w lind him invading the aancity of the su preme bench, and attempting to make a lool of its gray-haired chief justice, to assist in coercing the judicial opinion of his son, who sat upon the chancery bench, and that too in a case which he knew must ultimately come before tlie supreme court for decision. For the mere contemplation of such a wrong as voting for him, I may need forgiveness as mucn as some or my uooimowi, wno disbanded and well nfgli destroyed the Democratic party in Mississippi. And as thia seems to bs the year of reconcil iation and forgiveness, when centennial celebrations are awakening the broth erly love of the first great rebellion, and when the Federal aud Confedeiate sol diers are about to unite in their FLORAL OFFERINGS TO THE HONORED DEAD, who in the last great rebellion gave up their livea in defense of their respective ideas of constitutional rights, we can afford to bo forgiving. A great struggle ii now before us and we need the assis tance of all who feel au interest in pre serving constitutional liberty. We cu auord to forgive again our leader of 1873, if he will fall into our rauks and fight under our banner, or we can wel come him under his own flag, if he will come as an ally and not as our leader. We cau auord to forgive aud to welcome those of the former carpst-bag fratern ity who have made their homes among us who have become citizens of Mis sissippi for weal or for woe, and who have become alarmed at the headlong pace at which their party is leading them aud us to our common ruin. That there are some such men in our State our experience tells ua.and we have hope that ail such will be found on the sale of honesty and justice, aiding to pro mote peace and economy aud warring against robbery and oppression. A thieving carpet-bagger was once the name which rose spontaneously to our lips when we beheld a white Radical office holder, but truth compels us to say that there have been exceptions in our river dis trict, which have been made more re markable by toeir striking contrast with others. Men who have wielded unlim ited power over the colored raCe, and who have used that power for the sup pression of violence and the preserva tion of peace, and who have managed the fiuaucial affairs of their county so a3 to promote the material interests of all I would be glad to welcome all such to the ranks of tho Democracy; or, if we must meet in opposing line3, we can meet tthem as foemen worthy of our steel; aud we cau say further, that If more such men had been appointed to ofllceamong us, THE RADICAL PARTY would not stink as it does to-day in the nostrils of all honest men. And we are, especially, ready to forgive the colored men, who have so long battled agaiust ua in their ignorance and the prejudices engendered by the false teaching of cor rupt advisers. Many of them are be ginning to see how grossly they have been deceived as to the principles and objects of the Democratic party, and are ready to unite with us in the mainten ance of a home government, to be ad ministered by home folks. But, while we are ready to receive assaistance from good men of any and all past political creeds, and to take them in as recruits in our ranks, or to welcome them aa al lies under their own flags, we cau no longer fight under any other banner but that of the Democratic party. We fought the battie of 1869 under a banner claimed to be the true Republican ban ner, and to be indorsed by the Presi dent, but we deceived ourselves, and were defeated. We fought the battle of 187" under the Liberal-Republican standard, and again met defeat. We fought the battle of 1873 under the flag of Alcorn republicanism, and were most disastrously routed. There are now but two national parties, the one Republican and tho other Demo cratic, and all men must stand with one or the other. To call ourselves the Democratic-Conservative party seems to me to imply that there is a Democratic-Radicarparty, to which the Democratic-Conservative party is op posed. We need no such qualification to our title; and for mysell, I am like the ironside Bap ist, "I want no handle to my name." Sugar-coated pills indi cate a medicine that is bitter to the taste, and we cannot admit that the principles of the present Democratic party are bit ter, either to the whigs of former days or to the Liberal Republicans of the present. The Democracy of to-day is not the Democracy of the past, any more thau the fashions of to-day are the faslilonn of the past. THE WHIG PARTY SLEEPS in the graves of Webster and Clay, aud I the eecesslou Democracy lies buried iu i the tomb of Calhouu and under the lit i tie hillocks which mark tlie last resting places of the Confederate dead. The ! Democratic party of to-day ia composed ' of the liberal aud conservative men of I all former party creeds, and it swept in triumph over the northern States in last year's elections. It is tho party of the people oppc.ed to the office hold ers who would perpetuate their power aud make themselves our masters It is the party of the tax-payers, opposed to the plunderers who have converted places of public trust into franchises for embezzlement. It is the party of hou esty, intelligence and virtue, opposed to corruption, ignorance and vice, it is the party of local free government, op posed to centralized depotism. It ia the party of constitutional liberty, opposed to the one-man power, whether it comes by inheritance or by the usurpation of a successful military leader. .Let us not, then, quibble about a name, but let us rally unler the national Democratic banner, which Hendricks or Indiana, Allen of Ohio, Tilden of New York, aud Gaston of Massachusetts, have borne in triumph, and if victory should perch upon our standard it will be nil the more glori&ua, because none can say it was won under fiilse colors; and if de feat cornea we can meet it like men. Let ua follow the example of THE GLORIOUS DEMOCRACY OF MASSA CHUSETTS, who have wandered forty years in the wilderness of defeat, but whose faith has at last received its merited reward. Let ua cling to the hope that our ances tors of 1776 did not die iu vain, and that republican liberty will be preserved ; and let us still believe that "truth is eternal and public justice certain." But if we are mistaken, if corruption, ignorance and vice shall take the place of honesty, intelligence and virtue; if our property is to bs confiscated to enrich tax-gath ering robbers; if military satraps are to strangle State legislatures; if constitu tional liberty ia to be destroyed, and a military despot to usurp the crown which Washington refused, then let tho old Democratic ship be set alloat, aud let us " Nail to tho mast her tattered tiaj, Set every threadbare sail, And give her to tho God of storms, The lightning and the gale." On the conclusion of the speech, which was well received, the delegates were elected, and credeutialed for ser vice. BO WEN.

Mr. Fullerton read passages from tho letter aud ques tioned the witness as to the storiea to which Beecher alluded, and the witneaa said : " Beecher said there were stories in circulation affecting Tilton'a moral character; he told one of them, but I don't remember them now, as Mr. Beecher asked me if I was his frienl, and I told him I had no un friendly feelings toward him; I did not say to Beecher I would stand by him aa a friend; 1 mede calls with friendly feelings, but 1 did not mamiest them in any other form than I have mentioned; these feelings remained throughout the interviews, aud were not altered when 1 left." Mr. Fullerton said that was all he had to ask witness. Evarts cross examined witness: He handed a letter aud envelope to witness; said I believe thia ia the letter and en velope I took to Beecher; it beara marks of having been opened and closed; I have no recollection whether it was open or closed when I gave it to Beecher ; this letter had been two or three hours In my possession when I delivered it; I got it from Tilton at my house; no per son waa present when it waa given to me; mere was an appointment at my house with Tilton that morniug; it was made by Mr. Johnson and Mr. Tilton on the Saturday before; I think I told them I would be at home all of that day, ami would see them when they de sired; I remember they said they would call in the morning of Monday; they came early in the forenoon; I think be fore eleven o'clock, and may have stayed two hours or more; the topic of conversation waa almost eutirely that for which the interview waa made; Mr. Johnson left before Tilton, at twelve, and Tilton a little later; I wrote a note to Deacon Freeland that day.but have no copyeof it; I don't believe I mado a copy of it; I sent this note to Freeland immediately after the gentle men left, I think between twelve and two o'clock; I received a verbal answer a few moments after tho messenger re turned. I did not see Freeland nor Beecher; the message was brought by the messenger, who waa my eon, John Elliott Bowen; It waa four or five in the evening when I saw Mr. Beecher; I don't recollect if I saw any person at Deacon Freeland's except Mr. Beecher; I have no recollection of seeiug a ser vant who opened the door; I don't re member whether this interview was in gaslight or daylight; I occupied the frout parlor; Mr. i?reeiaud'a family consisted of hia wife and other membeia, I can't tell how many; the folding-doors were closed when I went in; I think I stayed there about half an hour, or a little lon ger; I don't remember if, when I got there, there was any person awaiting me; I don't remember any gentleman waiting to see me as to my conversation with Mr. Beecher, nor do I remember a conversation gwith gentlemen before I went to see Beecher; I don't remem ber seeing Jiggleston there; JSggleaton waa one of the co-editors of the Inde pendent. When I received the letter of the twenty-second of January from Mr. Beecher, I read it, and kept it; I don't thinK it shuck me that letter contained a different version of the story of my interview with .Beecher than really oc curred. On Saturday, December 30th, j torn liiiou oi my intention to termi nate hia connection with the Indepen dent; I told Tilton of my intention in the Union office; I then left; I believe Tilton left after me; I don't remember seeing him at the Union office after that. Later in the day I sent him a formal notice of his removal. Witness handed Mr. Evarta two papers, which, he said, were notices of the removal of Mr. Tilton from the Independent and Union, which Mr. Evarts read in evi dence. Witness continued: I believe I received anawers to these notea from Tilton, but am not certain; I have an impression I read some reply in writing; I waa entirely solvent, and havo been so sinco I havo recollection on the aui ject of admitting that 1 owed Tilton any remuneration for cancelling con tracts; I paid other claims to Tilton, amounting to between two and three thousand dollars; they were giveu to Moulton; I don't think Moulton left power of attorney with me. Mr. Evarts read the receipt given to witness by Tilton for the check for seveu thousand dollars, and witness eaid thia receipt was giveu l-y Tilton on the even ing tho arbitration wa3 made, aud the check was given him about this time. T was shown a galley of proof of the Gldcn-Aac article, and I believe it was a iowu me by tho person with whom I talked about the arbitration; I don't re member who the person was; think I named Ciafiin ou the arbitration com mittee; I did not uuderstand who Tilton named; I don't remember when I heard the names of tlie three arbitrators named; never before the evening of tlie arbitration; did I see tho text of the tri partite agreement? it was after this I heard about it; I received tlie Wood stock letter three or four days after my settlement with Tilton; it was dated June 16, 1873; this letter waa relumed to mo after tho settlement; I never asked for its return nor did I expect it; it was a sun.rie to me when I received it; it waa Clallin who brought me the tripartite agreement; it waa left with me and not immediately signed; it was left at my ollice in New York, and signed, I thiuk, next day; I can't fix the day it was leit with me; the paper which was left with me waa changed.aud after it waa chang ed I signed it. Shown paper. Thia :s not the paper which wa3 left with me, aud I signed on the next day; I cannot state how soon after the paper was sign ed by me; other parties signed it, but I believe it was a short time; I waa in formed, two or three days before the meeting of arbitrators, when they would meet; it waa stated to me that they would meet at Moulton's on the evening 'bey did meet, April 3d; I cannot say from whom I received notice, but think it wa3 froni one of the arbitrator; I went around to the meeting with Chaa. Storrs; when I got there don't remem ber who was there; I don't remember if Tilton or Moulton were there; for aught I know, when I got there, there may have been parties there; when we as sembled there, weahook hands all round; thia waa in the back dining-room on the parlor floor; I cannot remember what waa aaid then, nor have I auy recollec tion of it; the arbitrators gathered about the table, and I asked what waa to be submitted, and they said the difference between Tilton aud myself, aud I said that I would not go a siep further until the submission of the matter waa made in writing; Moulton drew up the submission, and Tilton and myself signed it; Tilton then submitted hia case to the committee, claiming a certain amount; in substance he said: "I claim seven thousand dollars," and gave cer tain re.sons for the claim; he said that by the articles of the contract he claimed about seven thousand dollars; at thia moment I don't remember that he said anything else; I said to the arbitrators that in my view there waa no legal claim on the Independent or Union, and I would leave the whole matter with them; I don't remember saying there waa no claim for any amount, but I may have aaid there waa no legal claim; after theae statements were made we went into the front parlor and left the arbi trators to themselves; Tilton and myself went into the front room, and Moulton, I think, went up stairs: we were there about half an hour before the arbitrators announced their decision; the folding doora were then opened and we were invited to go back; the award was then announced, but I don't remember what was said or who announced the award ; no statement was made to me by Clatliu that all papers were to be burned and the tripartite agreement signed: noth ing oi this kind occurred; there was nothing said out of which thin statement could ooour; I re member the conversation but it did not take place among all tlie parties in the room; I don't remember them sep arating into kuots or groups in tho room, though they may have done so; Clafliu may have said thia out of my hearing, out 1 don't think it waa said in the presence of the arbitrators: thia room, where the arbitration took place, was a large room, about fifteen feet by seventeen I should think. Recess was here taken. PRESS COMMENTS. The Brooklyn Araus savs of Bowen'a testimony: Mr. Bowen contrftlicts Mr. Beecher on two of the most vital points of the case. Which is right, must be determined by sustaining the witness. it we remember correctly. Beecher ex plained his grief aud letters by his con viction that he had done Tilton an in jury by advising Mrs. Tilton to seperate irom mm anu oy nis auvice to Bowen, by which Tilton lost his editorial position ; now Bowen swears Tilton had been dismissed from his editorial posi tion prior tc any conversation ou tlie subject with Beecher, and that Beecher did not advise him to discharge Tiltou. Mr. Bowen also swears that the payment of one thousand dollars by him to Tilton had nothing whatever to do with the set tlement of scandal difficulties. The de fense set up the theory that Tilton wrung that money out of Bowen by threatening to publish the scandal. PERSONAL. Captain Japanese Waggoner, of the house of J. & L.

Editors Appeal It afl'orda me pleasure tostate that I am in receipt of letters from Dr. Morrow, containing statements (with references) that he was neither no poor when elected nor so rich now as has been represented that he was under no necessity to use the State borrowing power for his private purposes, and that he did not so use it. These statements, corroborated by the reerences, satisfy me. For auy injus tice or injury done the doctor by my al lusion to him, I wish to atone, so far as possible, by stating that from the ev idence now before me, I am willing to accord him the credit of being one of the most efficient, capable, correct and honest treasurers the State baa had for many years.
